It's been around for quite some time. It is classic, tailored, refined and currently enjoying a revival. It is one of my latest clothing fascinations. It's different, unexpected, and not ordinary. It is a mark of distinction. It's fun and not everyone can pull it off. Or I should say, not everyone will care to pull it off. It is the Club Collar and I think it is quite cool.

Originally, part of Eaton College's dress code the club, (also known as the golf collar) was popular in the early decades of the 20th century. The rounded club collar is having quite a resurgence this Autumn. More traditional clothiers to the avant garde fashion houses are showing this collar. Dare to be different. I wear them with contrasting bow ties or just a pair of jeans and casual shoes.
